I love all your tops, Peggy. The ultimate in classic "can't do without it" style and wonderful colors; I'm really fond of the contrast trim version. Lovely, Lily

Peggy, great review and I love your tops.

I just cut another one of these after moving my dart down like you did on your last top. Maybe I have it absolutely perfect now so I can cut into nice knit like you did. I really like your new blue top!

Looks great! I should try this top. I made view A and loved it. I never reviewed it, but my DD's cat pulled a thread and ruined that top. So far, I haven't found a T-type top pattern I like.

You really have been busy with the knit tops! Black & white lend themselves so well to contrasting bindings & all, and always look so classy. Your workmanship really shows in the neck binding!

Love the contrast - great looking top

I love this too, and I just bought the next size down. It is a good basic tee with great instructions. One of my first knits that actually worked for me.

Great t-shirts. I especially like the contrast version. I made the wrap version but made the mistake of using shirring on a heavier fabric. I didn't think to make it without the shirring like you did.

I love your latest version of this pattern! Very RTW high end boutique looking!

I love this pattern, too. It's my TNT tee pattern.

I like your first version and your new version - looks very RTW.

Thank you for the review. At least this one didn't have a whole lot of alterations that I didn't understand

Hey, everything you're making from stash matches! What a concept! Congrats on needing a smaller size.

I like the wrap version. It doesn't look too big at all. Darts are a busty gals best friend.

Great looking top. Thanks for reminding me that I need to make this again!

What a fantastic basic tee!

I have only made this once but have two more cut out. Everyone I have seen of this pattern looks wonderful. A real classic.

Peggy, don't you just love this pattern? I've made about 40 of these tops. I can't get enough long sleeved tshirts. This is def. a TNT pattern and your top looks great!!

Left the darts just where they were on this one and they are fine.

Love this top Peggy. I have it on my cutting table ready to go, so thanks for the tip on the binding stitching. I love that colour and it does look very comfortable.

I really need to make this version. Yours looks great - I love this pattern. That Juliette sure looks comfy and soft.

Your top is lovely. How nice to have a well-fitting basic knit top. That's what I'm working on right now.

Now I can see it, but I was surprised, expecting it to be Christmas Red. ;-) Looks like a winning pattern. I've read concerns about the position of the dart in some of SB's patterns. Did you make any adjustment in the dart position, or was it right for you just as it was?

Sorry everyone! I've been on the road but changed this to my FoPR photo album.
Lhan said... (1/1/07 6:58 PM) Reply
Still can't see the photos. I get the same message indicated above. Have you told Yahoo that you want your photos to be public access? I have this pattern, so I would like to see your results. Cheers!
PegL said... (1/1/07 2:24 PM) Reply
I can't see your photo either and I would really love to see it! I finally bought this pattern during the last Vogue sale so I guess I need to get it out!
cindy-lou said... (1/1/07 12:16 PM) Reply
me,too! Can you try cutting and pasting the pic into your photo album on pr site?

Can't see it, either. This is what comes up when I click on the link: "Uh-oh. Something bad happened... We are really sorry, but something went wrong while handling your request. [listPhotos:1:78]"

Nope. I can't see it either.
Peggy L said... (1/1/07 11:24 AM) Reply
Sorry! Is anyone else having trouble. It worked for me. It is in Yahoo Photos.
